Getting Started on Sites: How to Request a Personal Drupal Site

This blog post is the first in a series on setting up your personal Drupal site on Stanford Sites.

The Stanford Sites Drupal hosting service is a free service for the Stanford community that provides centrally-maintained and supported Drupal modules pre-installed. These modules are hand-selected to support website needs found in our academic environment, so you easily could use it to build your department, group, or personal website. Stanford Sites is available to all Stanford faculty, staff, and students with SUNetID.

Need to Sort a View in a Specific Order?

Often we run into a common problem where clients want to have their Staff listed in a particular order not just ascending or descending alphabetically. We can easily solve this using a great module called Draggable Views. I love using Draggable Views!  Here's my quick lesson on how to use this awesome module for Drupal 7.

Step 1 - Build your initial public-facing view.  Let's call it "Staff." This will be the final view that is shown on the site.

Stanford Feature: Content Status

If you need an easy workflow solution for publishing content only after  it has been vetted and approved, then the Content Status Feature may be a great solution for you!

Content Status is a module created by Stanford Web Services that implements an easy way to identify the status of your pages as approved, in review or placeholder content. 

Currently this module is only available for Drupal sites in using the Collaboration Tools Installer and Drupal sites in AFS.  This module is proposed for the stack of core modules.
